About the Artists

Veronique Hahn, a Swiss American artist and writer, likes to work multi-and cross-culturally. She grew up in several countries: Morocco, Switzerland, the USA and The Netherlands, where she studied Art. Her experiences in life have shaped the way she expresses herself in her art and writing. Hahn has exhibited her artwork in several countries, such as in France (Paris, Strassbourg), Germany ( Berlin, Mannheim, et al.), Switzerland (Zurich, Geneva, et al.), Austria (Innsbruck) and across the USA. Her first art show was in Switzerland in 1995.

Elaine McMurray is a contemporary artist who is currently based in Austin, TX. She received her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin and her practice is primarily based in painting. Recent projects include organizing and exhibiting work in A Good Moment and We’re Done.

McMurray was also invited to participate in the NES Artist Residency Program in Skagaströnd, Iceland along with the Oxbow School of Art & Artist Residency. Her work uses oil paint augmented with additives such as glitter & crystal to investigate loss, intimacy, and metamorphosis.
